CUSHIONING

  • Lunarlon cushioning system uses a soft, durable foam core held inside of a supportive foam carrier to give lightweight, responsive cushioning.
MIDSOLE
  • Lunarlon cushioning system uses a soft, durable foam core held inside of a supportive foam carrier to give lightweight, responsive cushioning.
  • Dynamic Support layers the LunarLite foam core with a Phylon carrier to produce a denser medial midsole, helping to reduce over pronation. 
  • Molded sipes throughout the midsole and outsole enhance flexibility.
UPPER
  • Flywire around the midfoot and heel is made of high tensile strength fibers layered between TPU and foam for a strong, lightweight, and dynamic fit.
  • Microfiber Synthetic overlays in the forefoot wrap the upper around the foot for a snug fit.
  • EVA sockliner is shaped to mimic the curvature of the heel and medial arch for increased comfort and support.
  • Strobel Last with the upper stitched to full-length fabric for a comfortable underfoot feel.
OUTSOLE
  • BRS 1000 carbon rubber provides durable traction.
  • Duralon uses blown rubber in the forefoot under the metatarsal area for improved cushioning.
  • Kurim is a lightweight rubber dot pattern in the forefoot for increased grip and flexibility.

Comments: These shoes are a perfect racing flat for a mid to fore foot strikers looking to race longer distances. I would recommend this shoe for 5k to marathon races, although its not the lightest 5k racing shoe. It has plenty of cushioning to save you legs for the later miles in a long road race and give you some calf and achilles relief. The cushioning makes your landing feel amazingly soft for a shoe that is so light. Caution: this is not a shoe for a heel striker seeing as how there is not enough cushioning, and the heel is very slender. I generally didn't feel the dynamic support system, until my form got sloppy after mile 14 which is a good thing since it doesn't effect your natural stride. All around great shoe! Want to thank RW for posting their road test video for this shoe on YouTube, that's what really made me interested in this shoe.

Comments: These shoes are so worth the cost. I bought Nike Lunarspeed Lite+ 2 Men's Shoes Blue/Crim/Wh as my first ever running shoe and I love running in them. I received my shoes exactly when they told me they should arrive. The shoes are so comfortable. I would totally recommend these shoes to everybody.
